We nearly got Advanced Warfare 2 instead of Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty: WWII made over $500 million within its first three days on the market, however Activision is saying we could have had a whole other game this year.

Turns out that Activision either listened to their fans, or the fact Infinite Warfare sales were not too great, and canned an early bid for Advanced Warfare 2.

According to a Gamespot report, Activision partnered with motorcycle manufacturer Indian to build a "Call of Duty: WW II"-themed promotional bike". For those who are asking how this $500 Million revenue is massive? it is impressive because it beat the opening weekend earnings of the highly anticipated Hollywood movies - Thor: Raganork and Wonder Women.

Reuters reports that AM has accused the publisher of "taking advantage of its goodwill and reputation" by featuring the iconic armoured truck both in its Call of Duty game series and associated licensed books and toys.

However, the disappointment of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and the early success of Call of Duty: WW2 does not mean that the franchise will be stuck in the past.
